Police have identified the gunman who opened fire on a Portland-area mall Tuesday.

 

Authorities say 22-year-old Jacob Tyler Roberts ran through the Clackamas Town Center mall around 3:30pm with a rifle, wearing a white hockey mask and a bulletproof vest.

(ABC News)

 

Roberts reportedly stole the gun from someone he knew and killed two people before taking his own life.

 

CNN reports one reason why more people were not injured was because Roberts’ rifle jammed during his attack. About 10,000 people were in the mall the time.

 

The Oregonian reports the two killed in the shooting have been identified as 45-year-old Cindy Ann Yuille and 44-year-old Steve Forsyth.
